Ogun Commissioner, Oludotun Vows To Protect Ogun Forest Reserves From Illegal Activities

 

The Ogun State Commissioner for Forestry, Engr Taiwo Oludotun, has vowed to take action against illegal occupants of the state’s nine forest reserves.

Speaking at a press conference held at his Okemosan office in Abeokuta, the state capital, Oludotun stated that the illegal occupants are causing economic losses and security threats by destroying conserved tree species and building structures within the reserves.

The commissioner specifically mentioned the Omo Forest Reserve, where illegal occupants have built houses and cultivated cocoa farms, leading to the destruction of preserved tree species.

He denied allegations of brutalization of the illegal occupants, explaining that the ministry had held meetings with them and advised them to stop their activities.

Oludotun accused the inhabitants of Etemi Gerald, a natural heritage area within the Omo Reserve, of engaging in nefarious activities, including building houses and cultivating cocoa farms without permission.

He alleged that they had also attacked security operatives and stockpiled arms and ammunition.

The commissioner emphasized that the state government would not allow illegal activities to continue in the forest reserves, which are meant to be protected for research and conservation purposes.

The forest Commissioner also warned the illegal occupants to vacate the reserves or face consequences.

According to him “It is a known fact that farming and erection of permanent structures within the forest reserves without the consent of the State government is illegal”

“The Ministry held series of meetings with them, where they were warned to desist from the wanton destruction of the National heritage”

“The inhabitants of Etemi Gerald continued the expansion of Cocoa farms and structures in the prohibited areas. All efforts to stop them from further expansion of their cocoa farms into Queen’s forest of the conservation zone proved abortive.

“Surprisingly, they constituted themselves as Militant groups in the area, stockpiled arms and ammunition with which they attack people and security agents”

One of the Militant groups spearheaded by Mr Akinlolu Kehinde who is a kingpin in that area has on many occasions hindered the officials of the Ministry from performing their official assignments”

Engr. Oludotun hinted that the ministry after series of warnings, commenced the destruction of illegal farms and structures in the forest reserves, one of such destruction was recently carried out on 20th March 2024 adding that the destruction was carried out in conjunction with the law enforcement agency officers of Nigeria Police.

He said, during the demolition exercise, the team that went for the operation were fired at by unknown group of Militant men hidden in the forest reserve but were subdued by the security team that accompanied the Ministry’s officials and a total of twenty three illegal buildings were demolished in the area.

Our correspondent reports that the Commissioner stance was aimed at safeguarding the state’s forest reserves for future generations and preventing further economic losses and security threats.

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D., NPM, condemns in the strongest terms the recent outbreak of violence and subsequent breakdown of law and order at various Local Government Council secretariats in Rivers State, where supporters of two political factions clashed over the tenure of Local Government Council Chairmen, which unfortunately led to the tragic deaths of a Police Officer – Inspector David Mgbada, and Samuel Nwigwe, a vigilante member at Eberi-Omuma in Omuma LGA.

 

In response to these heinous acts, the IGP has directed the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State, CP Olatunji Disu, to heighten security measures across the state and institute thorough investigations into the killing of the police officer and the vigilante operative, as well as the general violence which erupted in the state. The IGP has specifically deployed operatives of the Force Intelligence Response Team (IRT) to assist the Rivers State Command in apprehending the killers of the police officer and the vigilante member. The IGP seriously warns individuals and groups of people who have a penchant for senseless attacks and mindless killings of police officers and other security operatives across the country to desist forthwith as the fullest force of the law will be meted on them.

 

The CP has also been directed to focus on increased patrols, strategic deployment of officers, and enhanced intelligence operations to prevent further violence and ensure the safety of all residents.
